So, FFVI's cast is cut down to eight. Who do you keep? Who do you bump? Explain.

I'd keep...
I. Terra
II. Celes
III. Locke
IV. Edgar
V. Sabin
VI. Setzer
VII. Cyan
VIII. Shadow

All of these character have the most to do with plot and/or are more developed than the rest.

1. Sabin
2. Sabin
3. Sabin
4. Sabin
5. Sabin
6. Sabin
7. Sabin
8. Cyan

I threw Cyan in there because 8 Sabins would just be silly.

Setzer
Sabin
Terra
Celes
Shadow
Mog
Locke
Gogo

Gogo gets no love, I don't get it.

The rest of them are pretty standard picks cept maybe Mog and I don't know why anyone wouldn't want to keep the playable moogle.

A lot of people didn't know about the option to assign him skills. Once you do that he's a beast. (Especially when he mimics Umaro)

1. Sabin
2. Sabin
3. Sabin
4. Sabin
5. Sabin
6. Sabin
7. Sabin
8. Cyan

I threw Cyan in there because 8 Sabins would just be silly.

Plus we need someone to say thou. Actually, we might need Gau in there as well. Should we bump it to nine or just drop one Mr. Thou?

I pick Laddy's 8 for the same reason, though I could swap Setzer for Mog.

I think six Sabins, Gau and Cyan would be stellar!

1. Edgar
2. Celes
3. Sabin
4. Umaro
5. Gau
6. Relm
7. Locke
8. Shadow

If I can draft in General Leo, I'd bring him in for Relm ideally but, due to Ultros, I'd inevitably drop Shadow instead becuase, well, Ultros.

I think these characters would work best if the size of the cast was lowered.

1. Terra
2. Locke
3. Edgar
4. Sabin
5. Celes
6. Shadow
7. Cyan
8. Setzer

I doubt that this would be the final roster of any game as it lacks the children and other necessary archetypes that the writers of Square Enix tend to find necessary these days.

1. Sabin - 8guy's a beast
2. Edgar - tools, they just dominate
3. Terra - great story, great set of skills
4. Shadow - he's a freakin ninja !
5. Celes - great story, great set of skills
6. Locke - stealing is bad, but so useful
7. Mog - kupo !
8. Cyan

I never really cared about Relm & Strago's story. Plus, poor fighting skills

Do I lose Crusader if I pick the eight dragons? :)

You mean to dismiss all but 8 cast memebers at the end? I'd keep Terra, Celes, Strago, Relm, Locke, Mog, Gau, and Shadow. I suppose you have to get Celes, Edgar, and Setzer to not fail Kefka's Tower.

Otherwise there could be plenty of topics about character variations.
